Join the Chichester Chorale and the Chichester Chamber Ensemble for an evening of music by George Frederic Handel & Leopold Mozart in the stunning setting of Boxgrove Priory.
2019 marks 260 years since the death of the German (later British) Baroque composer George Frederic Handel. We celebrate his music by performing the Coronation Anthem entitled ‘Zadok the Priest’, which was written for the Coronation of King George II in 1727, ‘The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ from his Oratorio Solomon, and ‘The Foundling Hospital Anthem’ also known as ‘Blessed are they that considereth the poor’ which was written for, and first performed in, The Foundling Hospital in London, and was the last piece of English Church Music that Handel composed.
2019 also marks 300 years since the birth of the German composer Leopold Mozart, father of Wolfgang Amadeus. We perform his ‘Missa Brevis in C’.
Part of the Festival of Chichester.
